A Variety of Tray Lidding Film for a Variety of Packages

We offer a wide range of lidding films for use with most thermoformed and APET, PP and PE lined trays. We ensure that tray and film are perfectly matched within very tight specifications to provide optimum performance and minimize waste. Peel strength, product cooking methods, print quality, degradability, product respiration rates and resealability all play a part in choosing the right lidding film for your product.

Resealable Lidding Films

Resealable lidding films sealed on trays are designed to be opened and closed multiple times. Resealable lidding films are perfect for tray-packaged foods that have more than one serving. The package can opened and resealed for each serving, keeping food fresh between servings.

Cold and Hot Lidding Films

Cold lidding films are specially designed to function well in applications with very cold temperatures such as refrigerated and frozen foods, cut fruit, vegetables and other produce. Cold lidding films adhere to PET, PS, HIPS PLA coated trays. Hot lidding films are specially designed to work well in aplications with hot temperatures utilizing ovenable CPET plastic trays as well as PET coated ovenable paperboard trays. Hot lidding films adhere to CPET, PP, OPS, PS, APET coatings, HIPS, HDPE trays.

Tamper Evident Lidding Films

Lidding films with tamper evidence capabilities help food manufacturers and grocery stores protect their products from tampering. Often made of a thicker material tamper-evident lidding film has a unique design that helps to identify if the trayed package has been opened. Most tamper evident lidding film features a perforated line that runs along the seal of the film. If the lidding film has been tampered with, this line will be broken.
